Production started shortly after Lana Turner had given birth to her daughter, Cheryl Crane who was an RH baby and had to remain in the hospital. Turner was anemic during filming due to the fact that MGM ordered her back to work before she had fully recovered. See more »
Aimless Pseudo-Comedy Starring The Beautiful Lana Turner
First let me say that Lana Turner certainly looks beautiful in her role as a woman who has no idea what she wants. Well, she does like to be pursued. And occasionally she likes the idea of marriage.
This film is listed under the comedy genre. The few forays into the realm of comedy do not make this a comedy any more than her hallucinatory scenes of past lovers makes this a science fiction film. Actually, the film cannot decide what it wants to be. The swing from lighthearted banter to life-altering urgency and back prevents the viewer from fully investing emotionally in the perils of Theo (Ms. Turner).
The only thing to recommend this film are the beautiful people who populate it. And the photography and fashion that frame them.
The script must have been worked and reworked a hundred times by numerous scribes. It is so disjointed that in the end it leaves you wondering what it was all about. Yes, there is the neat "there's no place like home"-type attempt to put a neat ribbon on it all, but it rings hollow. Just look at the pretty people and smile.
